From June 27 to July 1, New York City's Film Society of Lincoln Center will be screening the films of "vanguard anime director" Satoshi Kon, who will come to New York for the program. His full-length works include Paprika which was recently named the 100 best movies ever made by the Japanese edition of Newsweek magazine, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Perfect Blue. Kon's next project, Yume-miru Kikai ("The Dreaming Machine"), is currently in production at Madhouse. He calls it a "future folklore story" aimed at children. The director has previously visited the United States in 2003 for New York's Big Apple Anime Festival and last year for a film program at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
